I have a copy of The Golden Age of Folk and Fairy Tales: From the Brothers Grimm to Andrew Lang edited by Jack Zipes to giveaway at the end of this month. As we all know, I hate to just collect names and pick one for a giveaway. I like to ask for more. And these days I need help generating content for this blog. So two birds, one rock. Yay SurLaLune!
I finally decided on what you can do for a chance to enter to win the copy of the book. Inspired by the Golden Age title as well as March being Youth Art Month, I am asking you to share your favorite fairy tale illustration--it can be from the Golden Age of Illustration (which is what inspired the theme) or any other time.
Here's what you do:
Either reply to this post with your entry or email me with your submission. Your entry should include:
1) A link to the image of your favorite fairy tale illustration. No attached files, please. I am not going to download email attachments. Personal policy there.
2) Three (3!) sentences about why you like the illustration.
3) I will be sharing entries as posts on this blog so you can also share a link to your own blog if you are looking for some self-promotion opportunities. At least let me know how you would like to be identified in the post I will publish with your entry.
Submissions will be accepted through 11:59 PM PST, Monday, March 24, 2014. That gives you two weeks to submit.
I will announce the winner on Monday, March 31, 2014. International submissions are accepted. I'll ship internationally because I am nice that way. The book has been donated by the publisher, but I'll handle the shipping on my own.
The usual types of disclaimers apply. Now I am eager to see what your favorite illustrations are!
New Book: The Golden Age of Folk and Fairy Tales: From the Brothers Grimm to Andrew Lang edited by Jack Zipes
The Golden Age of Folk and Fairy Tales: From the Brothers Grimm to Andrew Lang edited by Jack Zipes was released back in October. I thought I had already posted about it, but I hadn't! This is important because it is the new prize in this month's giveaway which I will be posting about today, too.
This new book acts as sort of a companion book to Zipes' The Great Fairy Tale Tradition: From Straparola and Basile to the Brothers Grimm (Norton Critical Editions). Like that book, Golden Age offers collections of tales under themes, this time with a focus of tales collected during the Golden Age of folklore. So it's historical range isn't as wide as in The Great Fairy Tale Tradition, but the content is organized in a similar way and offers up some lesser known tales. I have included the lengthy table of contents below the book description.
In other words, it's a great addition to your personal library. Better yet for those on a budget, it's a great price, too.
In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, attitudes toward history and national identity fostered a "romantic" rediscovery of folk and fairy tales. This is the period of the Golden Age of folk and fairy tales, when European folklorists sought to understand and redefine the present through the common tales of the past, and long neglected stories became recognized as cultural treasures.
In this rich collection, distinguished expert of fairy tales Jack Zipes continues his lifelong exploration of the story-telling tradition with a focus on the Golden Age. Included are one hundred eighty-two tales--many available in English for the first time--grouped into eighteen tale types. Zipes provides an engaging general Introduction that discusses the folk and fairy tale tradition, the impact of the Brothers Grimm, and the significance of categorizing tales into various types.
Short introductions to each tale type that discuss its history, characteristics, and variants provide readers with important background information.
Also included are annotations, short biographies of folklorists of the period, and a substantial bibliography.
Eighteen original art works by students of the art department of Anglia Ruskin University not only illustrate the eighteen tale types, but also provide delightful--and sometimes astonishing--21st-century artistic interpretations of them.

The Enchanted, Inc. series by Shanna Swendson has had a loyal fanbase for several years now. Four of the titles, including the first book, have dropped to bargain book pricing this week. The books play lightly with many fairy tale tropes. And while they are adult marketed fiction--woman in the big city--they are "safe" for teen audiences, too.
Enchanted, Inc.: A Novel is $0.99, was $9.99
Much Ado About Magic (Enchanted, Inc.) is $3.99, was $6.99
Kiss and Spell (Enchanted, Inc.) is $3.99, was $6.99
No Quest For The Wicked (Enchanted, Inc.) is $3.99, was $6.99

It's a new month and there is a new bunch of Amazon's Ebook Monthly Deals, $3.99 or Less available. There are not any directly fairy tale related books this month, but there is one that some may consider so. I say this because the book is inspired by Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. Pop culture considers Alice a fairy tale although it isn't technically--but Disney made it into a movie and it left fantasy fiction status in many minds thusly.
I debated sharing here, but really, the cover for Splintered by A. G. Howard is just too eye-catching not to share. I know if I still shopped in bookstores regularly, I would pick up this book every time to consider it although I am not a big fan of Alice in Wonderland interpretations.
So for the month of March, or until quotas are met, Splintered by A. G. Howard is $3.99 in ebook format. It's been in the $10 range since it's 2013 publication date so this is a nice price drop.
This stunning debut captures the grotesque madness of a mystical under-land, as well as a girl's pangs of first love and independence. Alyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers--precisely the affliction that landed her mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together. For now. When her mother's mental health takes a turn for the worse, Alyssa learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality. The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice's tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice's mistakes and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.
The Wide-Awake Princess (Tales of the Wide-Awake Princess) by E. D. Baker is on sale in ebook format TODAY ONLY for $1.99. This has been on sale before but it's been a while since it was. Baker has a new book coming out in April--The Bravest Princess: A Tale of the Wide-Awake Princess (Tales of the Wide-Awake Princess)--so this is a promotional price drop to draw attention to the new book.
The book started out as a stand-alone book, but has turned into a series over the years. Baker is also known for her Frog Princess series which Disney loosely based its Frog Princess on.
In this stand-alone fairy tale, Princess Annie is the younger sister to Gwen, the princess destined to be Sleeping Beauty. When Gwennie pricks her finger and the whole castle falls asleep, only Annie is awake, and only Annie-blessed (or cursed?) with being impervious to magic-can venture out beyond the rose-covered hedge for help. She must find Gwen's true love to kiss her awake.
But who is her true love? The irritating Digby? The happy-go-lucky Prince Andreas, who is holding a contest to find his bride? The conniving Clarence, whose sinister motives couldn't possibly spell true love? Joined by one of her father's guards, Liam, who happened to be out of the castle when the sleeping spell struck, Annie travels through a fairy tale land populated with characters both familiar and new as she tries to fix her sister and her family . . . and perhaps even find a true love of her own.

The Fairest of Them All: A Novel by Carolyn Turgeon is temporarily reduced to $1.99 for the ebook format. Turgeon has published several fairy tale retellings and this is the most recent published last August. The book is inspired by both Rapunzel and Snow White. This may be a one day only deal so buy quickly. It is apparently a price match with Barnes and Noble's Deal of the Day, but sometimes these deal prices last a little longer on Amazon. Good luck!
In this kingdom, only one fairy tale can end with happily ever after.
In an enchanted forest, the maiden Rapunzel’s beautiful voice captivates a young prince hunting nearby. Overcome, he climbs her long golden hair to her tower and they spend an afternoon of passion together, but by nightfall the prince must return to his kingdom, and his betrothed.
Now king, he weds his intended and the kingdom rejoices when a daughter named Snow White is born. Beyond the castle walls, Rapunzel waits in her crumbling tower, gathering news of her beloved from those who come to her seeking wisdom. She tries to mend her broken heart but her love lingers, pulsing in the magic tendrils of her hair.
The king, too, is haunted by his memories, but after his queen’s mysterious death, he is finally able to follow his heart into the darkness of the forest. But can Rapunzel trade the shadows of the forest for the castle and be the innocent beauty he remembers?

The Goose Girl (Books of Bayern) by Shannon Hale is on sale today as an Amazon Kindle Daily Deal for only $1.99. This has been on sale before but it definitely worth the price if you don't own it yet. SurLaLune loves some Shannon Hale, one of the authors who retells fairy tales so creatively and also chooses lesser known ones at times, too. Goose Girl and Maid Maleen, to be sure, as well as Rapunzel and Jack and the Beanstalk.
Anidori-Kiladra Talianna Isilee, Crown Princess of Kildenree, spends the
first years of her life under her aunt's guidance learning to
communicate with animals. As she grows up Ani develops the skills of
animal speech, but is never comfortable speaking with people, so when
her silver-tongued lady-in-waiting leads a mutiny during Ani's journey
to be married in a foreign land, Ani is helpless and cannot persuade
anyone to assist her. Becoming a goose girl for the king, Ani
eventually uses her own special, nearly magical powers to find her way
to her true destiny. Shannon Hale has woven an incredible, original and
magical tale of a girl who must find her own unusual talents before she
can become queen of the people she has made her own.
Look out for the other books in this series: Enna Burning, River Secrets, and Forest Born!
